Spring Fringe Necklace

About this design:

This focal component can be used as a single piece to be centered in a necklace design or combined to make a 3-piece focal. These would look great filled with colorful tassels or dripping with silver and Czech drops.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Lay out your design. I don't typically go for symmetry, however I found that with this particular design, it was necessary.
Step 2:
Wire wrap bails onto your teardrops attaching the ones for the sides directly to the pewter component. Don't wire wrap the ones for the middle component to anything as they will be attached with jump rings.
Wire wrap bead links using the Bali style rounds to the component for center of the design.
Step 3:
Attach remaining charms & drops to center component using jump rings.
Step 4:
Attach remaining charms to side focals so they appear to be mirror images of each other.
Step 5:
Using heavier gauge jump rings, link together your components.
Step 6:
Attach chain to the ends or each of the side components
Step 7:
Add a lobster or spring clasp to the end of the chain and a charm to the end on the other chain. Using a slightly larger chain allows you to use the necklace chain itself as an extender.

    I think Ali was just giving general instructions about how to make this type of design, not this specific one. You can try writing customer service for more specifics :)
